Last year at this time I was just beginning the Camino de Santiago. Looking back, the Camino showed me my own strength, and that I'm capable of more than I probably know. Those 28 days have continued to challenge me even a year later, and for that I'm grateful.
Rolling Hills --- Shenandoah National Park was established in 1935, though legislative efforts to create a park began in 1901. The main draw of the park, Skyline Drive, runs 101 miles from the top to the bottom of this long and narrow park. But this scenic highway isn't everything; there are plenty enough waterfalls, mountains, and trails (even accessible ones!) to fulfill any visitor.
